Anyone else watched this new Netflix show yet? I generally enjoy Anya Taylor-Joy in any role, but a chess genius with a substance abuse addiction spoke to me on a whole new level. Gave me Girl, Interrupted vibes.

Yass this was so fabulous, wasn't familiar with the actress and I was checking her out hard!!.. then they said her character was 15 and I shit myself! 😂😂 glad the actress isn't a child 😅 but holy shit that age situation was throwing me. I mean they had a 24 year old women playing a 15 year old who was pretending to be 13 at one point 😂😂 still loved it!

I loved it so much! It was so interesting. At first I thought it was a tv show about chess, but it's so much more than that. So many scenes are incredible and the cinematography is very well done.

I loved the Chess theme and the female main character, but I wish they had made her less Mary Sue.

 

Sounds weird considering she has a drug addiction and obviously social problem, right? But like, she is beautiful, smart, the best chess player in like one week, rich and gets all the guys she is interested in. It was a bit too much, especially since there never were any "ugly" moments with her addiction. She also never was really lonely during the whole story, there was nearly always someone to support her.

 

So yeah, despite that it was pretty great though.

This thread and my flatmate who's been watching the show recently made me even more curious to give it a go. Well, seems like now I have another thing to do during my insomniac ass nights.

I always watch tv shows in my spare time so I have watched a lot of them. The Queen's Gambit is one of my favorite ones and it's definitely worth watching. Who can recommend something similar? By the way, Kodi is a real find for me, who uses it? Here is a great list of best Kodi builds https://www.firestic...odi-builds.html
